Meet Mike Kelly
This program encompassed everything that I knew I should be doing (eating healthy and exercising) with so much structure that it allowed me to makes these changes without having a choice. You have to be committed once you get here, but after being here it’s really something that everyone has in them. The change is hard, but simple. The staff and trainers really make a difference because they’re more than just trainers, there’s a community here, which you really need to help you get through it. I’ve gotten to know the people here a lot; I hear their stories, I related to them, and I feel like I’ve learned more because of that.
Before coming to Biggest Loser Resort Niagara, I was smoking ½ pack of cigarettes a day and unable to walk around my house. I would drive my car to class even though I knew I would get a parking ticket because I couldn’t walk the distance. It got to the point where I felt like my world was getting smaller, I felt like I was suffocating in my own body. That’s when I knew I had to make a change.
The first time I cramped up on a machine, the first time I felt like I was going to be sick I learned my limits, it didn’t kill me, and now I’m stronger. You don’t have to go back to that place, and the Biggest Loser has taught me that. Today I ran 5 miles, I worked out in classes for 6 hours, and after that I did an extra personal training session. I never thought I would consider myself a runner and now I’m running, I even signed up for two upcoming races.
I never thought I would be saying these things, and even though this was hard it’s not as hard as being overweight your entire life. People here everyday do things that they never thought they would do, including me. You just have to rub the dirt off, and once you do it feels great. I’ve done it, and I haven’t gone back.
Making Changes I’ve Been Waiting For
The first two days were very difficult for me, but I was able to push through and by the third day I had tons of energy. I was so surprised that i was able to work out for 6 hours every day and even more surprised that i was never hungry! Starting is the hardest part and it wasn’t easy putting myself first, but this program helped me develop the habits and the confidence to make the changes I’ve been wanting to make.*
Exceeded My Expectations
I’ve been at The Biggest Loser Resort Niagara for one week, and it has been a great week. I came here for the weight loss, but I had other things that needed to be fixed as well. My lifestyle had become very chaotic; I was working from home, so work was in my face 24/7 and when work is there I put that first. I was taking care of everything and everyone but myself, and work ended up consuming me. I was not eating regular meals, I was skipping the gym, I was canceling appointments; I went from a healthy lifestyle to a life that was going down the tubes because I was putting everything else on hold. At 65 years old, I pulled three all-nighters last month working. After that, I realized I couldn’t live like this anymore, and that is when I decided on Biggest Loser Resort Niagara. I knew that the structured environment it provides would be just what I needed.*
That structure was a huge appeal to me because even just thinking about what to eat became a stressor. I needed the kick-start and the exercise to get everything in a better place. You can be healthier when the rest of your life is in order. That is why I recommended the Biggest Loser Resort Niagara because it fixes those other things along with the weight loss. The support of the staff at the resort is phenomenal. Everyone works very hard, you never hear a complaint, and everyone always has a smile on their face. The people there can’t do enough for you, and all of that with the training is what makes it such a remarkable experience.
I was worried about my limitations because, due to my inactivity, I was very stiff and had trouble getting out of bed, but I was happy to see that the trainers were so willing to modify things and work with me. After just one week, my strength has gotten better. On average, I was burning over 1000 calories per day. By taking care of me, now feel like I can live healthily and do something that makes me happy. The huge mental change has been the biggest and most important result for me. This whole experience has exceeded my expectations, and I can’t wait to come back next September.*

What I Think Of As A Paradise
I came to the Biggest Loser Resort Niagara to support my daughter, who wanted to come here after college. The months prior to our stay I was terrified: the main issue was that I knew nothing about the resort, but, being from Israel, I was nervous about not being able to speak the language and not making friends. I have been here for five weeks and every week I’ve made lifelong friends. From the moment I got here everything was the best; from the pick up at the airport to all of the staff once I got here, everyone treated me like a king. You can tell that the resort is not just a place that people come to work; it’s a mission. I have so much respect for everyone here doing everything they can to make us feel at home, after 5 weeks I still feel at home. Everyday they have everything taken care of, all you have to do is wake up and go.
I came here for my daughter, but then she started supporting me and she became my inspiration. For the first, I put myself higher on the list and I started working on my own wellbeing. There is something about the atmosphere here; I’ve never seen people working so hard and when I watched all of these people I felt like I didn’t want to disappoint them or my trainers, so I must be an example. We all feel accountable to each other, and that’s what happens when all of us work together. You can take a box of matches and break each match individually, but when you hold them all together you can’t break them; that us what has happened to us here. Together, we feel like a team and that are in this together. The amazing thing that happens is that we work really hard, and we also burn calories from laughing! I have made such good friends here. I miss my family, but I already told them that I’m going to build myself a house across the lake.
For 21 years all I did was go from my home to my car to sitting at a desk all day, and now suddenly I’m working like I’m 18 years old again. I’ve learned that my body is more resilient than I thought. When I first got here I started at size 40 jeans and now I’m at size 36. I know that I’ve lost weight, but I don’t care about the pounds. I’m going to be an ambassador for this place and no matter what shape you’re in you can still come here and feel amazing. I want to bring my friends and family because they deserve to be healthy. If I had the power to convince everyone to come here I would, and I’ve promised myself that I’m going to come back here because this is exactly what I think of as a paradise.*
